Ireland Drops Most CCP Virus Restrictions

Translated by: MOS Education Team – Delmont

Ireland is scrapping almost all of its CCP virus restrictions the next day, Prime Minister Micheal Martin said in a national address on Jan 21st.

“We have weathered the Omicron storm,” Martin said. Ireland had the second highest incidence rate of CCP virus infections in Europe just last week. But then the number of cases dropped rapidly, and the number of hospitalizations and deaths remained flat. The government decided since Jan 22nd that bars and restaurants will no longer need to close at 8 p.m., and to ask customers for proof of vaccination. Indoor and outdoor venues are also set to return to full capacity. People will still be required to wear masks on public transport and in shops until the end of February.

Critics pointed out that the country has been one of the most cautious in the European Union on the risks of the CCP virus, putting in place some of the longest-running restrictions on travel and hospitality. Ireland’s hospitality sector welcomed the decision. At present, the “British Isles” has already given up the two-year restrictions ahead of other EU member states, and even North America, Australia and other countries, providing good conditions for further economic recovery.
